The patient underwent tongue cancer surgery

Doctors seemed professional. Low quality translation from Turkish to Russian and vice versa. For some reason, after PET KT (perhaps a coincidence), upon returning home, it was sharply worse. We had to urgently operate, although Turkish oncologists did not see the need for an operation, but offered to wait a month.

Surgery is the most effective management option for early stages of cancer. Tongue cancer surgery success rates are up to 90%. There are a complex of procedures and techniques to keep patient's looks of the face.

When the tumor is too big or is located in hard-to-reach area, oncologists apply additional management options: radio-, chemo-, or immunotherapies. They reduce tumor size before the operation, or make sure there is no cancer left after it.

Indications and contraindications for tongue cancer surgery

There are following contraindications for the surgery:

  • blood clotting pathologies (anemia);
  • late stages of tumor;
  • severe infections (HPV, HIV/AIDS) or recurrent inflammatory diseases;
  • nutrition malfunctions;
  • poor overall health condition.

When cancer has spread to other organs, surgeons apply different methods of treatment, such as chemo-, radio-, immunotherapies. In this case tongue cancer surgery may sometimes be performed to improve patient’s quality of life.

There are following indications for the operation:

  • cancer has not spread to other organs;
  • surgery will improve patient’s quality of life;
  • patient is able to endure the procedure.

Tongue cancer surgery is considered the best treatment for the disease, especially in the early stages.

Types of tongue cancer surgery

There are a number of surgical techniques available for patients with oral cancer. Surgeons make the choice of particular intervention type. It depends on tumor(s) size, localization, and patient’s health condition.

There are the following types of operation:

  • Tumor resection. During this intervention, a tumor is removed completely from the tongue. Some adjacent tissue is also resected to make sure the cancer didn’t spread. The operation is usually performed through the mouth. If the tumor is unreachable, surgeons make incisions in the patient’s throat.
  • Jawbone resection. If cancer has spread to the mandible, surgeons remove it partly or completely. Before that, physicians carefully study X-ray images of the bone.
  • Glossectomy. It is a tongue removal cancer surgery. Surgeons remove only a part of the organ if a tumor is small. In cases of a larger malignant formation, the entire tongue may be removed.
  • Laryngectomy. In cases when tumor has grown too big, surgeons may need to remove voice box. Some swallowing muscles need to be removed as well to make sure the cancer won’t spread.
  • Neck dissection. This tongue cancer surgery is applied if cancer has spread to neck lymph nodes. Surgeons remove the nodes depending on the extent of disease expansion.
  • Pedicle reconstruction. This is a complex of tongue reconstruction procedures for treatment of cancer. Surgeons restore shapes of the neck and mouth, as well as the insides of the cavity. Physicians use skin and muscle grafts to repair the throat.

Operation process

The intervention is conducted by a team of surgeons. A patient stays under general anesthesia. If a tumor is located in a reachable spot, physicians operate through a patient’s mouth. In other case, a small incision is made in the throat to access a tumor. Operation length is 1-4 hours.

Recovery process after the surgery depends on its type. Small tumor removal requires only a few hours of hospital stay. Reconstruction tongue cancer surgery or jawbone resection require 1-2 weeks of hospitalization.

The patient was treated of crohn's disease

We did not go to the clinic, we sent histology for review. Answers waited a long time and pulled out, we can say with forceps. All the answers were very concise, constantly had to ask for the addition. They paid for the advice of the doctor, but in fact did not receive it. In general, this hospital disappointed us. Perhaps the doctors there are good, but remote consultation is lame very much. Constantly communicated with Yulia Andreychuk. Yulia answered all questions quickly and provided information well. I was pleased with her work.
